The role of CCS power stations in future low carbon energy systems and their interaction with the downstream CO2 transportation and storage infrastructure

Thomas Spitz

University of Edinburgh

Thomas Spitz holds a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany and an MSc in Management from the University of Edinburgh Business School. Currently he is studying a PhD at the Engineering Department of the University of Edinburgh. His research focuses on the efficient integration of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) systems into the wider electricity system. His particular interests include the operating regimes of CCS power plants in future low carbon energy systems, as well as the constraints to flexible operation of the respective sub-sections of the CCS process chain.
